# Delay¶

class Delay(duration, unit='dt')[source]

Do nothing and just delay/wait/idle for a specified duration.

Create new delay instruction.

Attributes

 Delay.decompositions Get the decompositions of the instruction from the SessionEquivalenceLibrary. Delay.definition Return definition in terms of other basic gates. Delay.duration Get the duration of this delay. Delay.params return instruction params. Delay.unit Get the time unit of duration.

Methods

 Delay.add_decomposition(decomposition) Add a decomposition of the instruction to the SessionEquivalenceLibrary. Assemble a QasmQobjInstruction Delay.broadcast_arguments(qargs, cargs) Validation of the arguments. Delay.c_if(classical, val) Add classical condition on register classical and value val. Delay.copy([name]) Copy of the instruction. Special case. Return True .IFF. DEPRECATED: use instruction.reverse_ops(). Return a default OpenQASM string for the instruction. Creates an instruction with gate repeated n amount of times. For a composite instruction, reverse the order of sub-instructions. Return the identity matrix. Delay.validate_parameter(parameter) Instruction parameters has no validation or normalization.
